Back to the Drawing Board: The Future of the Pro-Life Movementby Teresa R., Esq. Wagner
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Wagner, formerly a National Right to Life Committee lobbyist and legislative analyst for the Family Research Council, cites the recent Supreme Court decision to allow "partial-birth abortions" as a case illustrating that the right-to-life movement has not been winning its fight against Roe v Wade (1973). She compiles 26 essays viewing legal, scientific, political, religious, and cultural aspects of the issue. A New Jersey Congressman argues that Republicans must do more to support its party's pro-life platform. Lacks an index.
